Kindle-Conflicting Books

Some books, including such recents as Mark Z. Danielewski's 'House of Leaves' and the J.J. Abrams/Doug Dorst collaboration 'S.,' simply don't work when you read them as ebooks - *if* they're even available in that format. They're physically demanding - you need to hold them in certain ways, pull pages or even objects out and look at them, etc.

(For more about this, check out this *awesome* BuzzFeed article: http://www.buzzfeed.com/lincolnmichel... )

Here's a list, celebrating books that simply MUST be read the old-fashioned way.

Oh, and the "collected physical elements" phenomenon? Yeah, it all started with Dennis Wheatley's "Crime Dossier" series. :)
